Peace, ethical entrepreneurship for peaceful and inclusive societies

The impact we have on ethical entrepreneurship: ‘to put an end to the exploitation of children’, ‘to fight corruption in a sustainable manner’ and ‘to develop effective, responsible and transparent institutions’, among others.

Our ambition

In this domain, we mainly focus on targets 2, 5 and 6 of SDG 16. These are respectively: ‘to put an end to the exploitation of children’, ‘to fight corruption sustainably’ and ‘to develop effective, responsible and transparent institutions’. Ethical responsible entrepreneurship is an essential part of corporate social responsibility for Sioen. We therefore emphasise several international agreements and we also have a strict internal ethical policy.

Human rights and work ethics: justice for everyone

Sioen applies a formal ethical code of conduct in all its companies and in all its interactions with third parties, in which honesty and integrity are central. We also explicitly ask our suppliers to stick to these values. In addition, we are committed to several international agreements.

UN Global Compact, a pact on these ten principles

Sioen subscribes the 10 principles of the UN global compact. By incorporating the Ten Principles of the UN Global Compact into our strategy, policies and procedures and by establishing a corporate culture of integrity and values, we’re upholding our basic responsibilities towards people and the planet.

The law and beyond

At Sioen, we strive to go beyond the minimal legal requirements, both when it comes to our production process and our people.

Sustainable development goals

The Sustainable Development Goals are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face, including poverty, inequality, climate change, environmental degradation, peace and justice.
